Nodong test site, North Korea, satellite image. This small military base in eastern North Korea is a test site for Nodong and Taepodong ballistic missiles. However, between completion of the site in 1988 and 2005 there have only been 2 missile tests at the facility. The site does not have the infrastructure to support an extensive missile test program. There are no transport links, paved roads or staff houses. The white area with a black tower at centre right is the launch pad. The blue building at centre is the missile assembly building and the blue area at top is the range control facility. Taken by the Ikonos satellite on 2 November 2000.
